Home has been updated numerous times over the 40-year span while owned by the current owners. Owners request a lease-back through April 30th.Some additional information on the home: Franks De Groot was a very well-known and popular architect in Austin in the 1950’s through the 1970’s. He designed a number of homes in Austin during this period, and his focus was mainly on the mid-century modern themes of Frank Lloyd Wright with the goal of having the structure organically integrated with the space and topography of the site. He designed this house in 1964 for Rowland and Flora Petit, two UT PhD professors – Rowland, Chemistry and Flora, a biological researcher. After the home was finished, they added the pool and Koi Pond in the front yard along with the courtyard wall. He was from Australia and added the lava rock touches in the courtyard as part of the pool project. Like any good artist, De Groot signed his work, but on a rafter in the attic not seen for many years. It was not found until a skylight was added in the mid 2000’s. The current owners bought the house in 1983 and they are the second to own the house. Among the changes they made were the addition of the open deck on the north and west side, and two stairs to the lower level, with access to the courtyard. They later modernized and updated the interior through several projects in the early to mid-2000’s. The architect for these projects was Al Godfrey of Austin.
